Christoph Schlingensief at KW Institute for Contemporary Art December 1st, 2013 - January 19th, 2014

King of schlock and shock, the late Christoph Schlingensief is widely considered one of the most eminent artists to emerge out of Germany in the last fifty years. Beginning as a filmmaker, he later incorporated theater, sculpture, installation, performance, and even literature into his practice before his untimely death at the age of fifty. Appropriating pop culture iconography for social activism, his democratic version of the post-Wagnerian (total art) sought to integrate the public and...

Subversive art needs no introduction. The world constantly seems ever more economically, politically and environmentally unstable and the times always seem to be changing. Artists, unsurprisingly, use their own artistic means to protest and fuel changes in society, using a wide range of strategies. In many ways, the artistic debates prevalent in the 1970s are recurring today and the discussion about the position of the artist within an information and media society is one of these debates.

      For  – the final project at Temporäre Kunsthalle Berlin – the artist John Bock has developed a masterful meta-structure within which he installs works by 63 artists. An eleven-meter-tall walk-in steel construction creates a range of spatial situations over four levels, linking the individual works into a kind of Gesamtkunstwerk, or total artwork. Unlike the classic white cube, this scenario offers the works on show anything but a neutral setting. Within a structure that is functional... [more]

While it is unfair to judge a book by its cover, one can certainly judge that some bookcovers are artworks in themselves. Berlin’s Kunst-Werke's excellent "VORSPANNKINO: 54 titles of an exhibition" demonstrates that the same holds true for film credits. "VORSPANNKINO: 54 titles of an exhibition" consists of a feature-film-length montage of 54 opening and closing credits cherry-picked by the KW curators to screen in cinema-scale in the main gallery, and addition credits shown on...
